SpaceX Starship SN10 launch - as it happened: Mars-bound prototype finally lands but explodes shortly after

SpaceX has successfully performed a flight test of its Mars-bound Starship spacecraft on Wednesday after several delays.

Starship SN10 lifted off to 10km before landing successfully at SpaceX’s Boca Chica facility in Texas, achieving what its predecessors could not.

Roughly eight minutes after landing, SN10 exploded while sitting at a lean on the landing pad.

Despite the explosion, the high-altitude flight test marked significant progress towards Elon Musk’s Mars ambitions.

SpaceX provided a live stream of the launch and landing, but did ended it before the explosion took place.
